Eyelid Surgery |


As we age, our eyelids begin to accumulate fatty tissue behind the upper and lower eyelids, leaving the skin looking loose and droopy. In the same way, there are other possible natural and medical causes for drooping eyelids resulting from nerve injuries, a stroke or ptosis — just some the conditions that can impact the upward gaze of the visual fields.

A blepharoplasty is an upper and | or lower surgical eyelid reduction procedure that restores and rejuvenates the appearance of the eyelids. 

For a surgeon, knowing how much skin to remove on the eyelids without compromising their function is vital. A specialist plastic surgeon in blepharoplasty procedures, Dr. Chang is equally renowned for his Asian eyelid surgery — a technique that leaves a pretarsal crease in the eyelids which are absent in the natural fold.

For the upper eyelids, a series of fine sutures are applied in the crease of the to close the incision. For the lower eyelids, a fine incision is made on the inside of the lower eyelid. The procedure will leave patients with some bruising and swelling, which will subside during the recovery period.  

DOWNTIME: Day surgery performed at our clinic. RECOVERY TIME: Between a week to ten days, with the sutures removed approximately seven days after surgery. 

The results are long-lasting [approximately 10 years; subject to your unique physical composition and age].
